Olney Central College is offering an artistic welding course at the West Richland Center in Noble. WEL 1206 Special Projects in Welding (Welding Sculpture) will meet from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursdays, beginning Aug. 20.

“It’s a very exciting class,” said Welding Specialist Maverick Fisher. “It’s a good class for someone who is creative and interested in making things like yard ornaments, but it isn’t limited to just art. We also will focus on fabrication and making items like patio sets.”

Tuition for the class is reduced for residents of the Illinois Eastern Community Colleges District who are taking four semester hours or less in the IECC District. For more information or to register, call 618-395-7777.
